Upgrading the Version of R on RStudio Server


When upgrading the version of R underneath RStudio Server, you need to make sure all connected sessions are able to suspend. This will ensure that all users come back and are running on the newly installed version of R. We recommend first taking the server offline with the following commands:

$ sudo rstudio-server offline
$ sudo rstudio-server force-suspend-all

Now install the desired version of R. After installation completes, you can bring the server back online with the following command:

$ sudo rstudio-server online
